Total War: Attila Announced
Slated for a 2015 release date.
If you’re a fan of the Total War games, and if you were afraid that Alien: Isolation signaled the start of a trend that developers Creative Assembly might be moving away from those games and branching out into other stuff, well, I have some good news for you- today, they announced Total War: Attila during their session at EGX 2014 in London.
Attila will follow the historical figure, and his one million horsemen. Given that description, it’s easy to see how he is a good fit for Total War, which has always emphasized large scale historical battles. It is a game that, in The Creative Assembly’s words, is being designed for veterans of the series, and it promises to bring new things to the table.
For example, disease:
“Diseases were a key feature of the period,” said communications manager Al Bickham. “We’ve decoupled the squalor/sanitation balance that we had in Rome 2 from public order. It’s now directly related to the health of your city. If you don’t keep a city clean, it may suffer disease.”
Total War: Attila is due for release some time in 2015, exclusively for PC.
